Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

The com­mu­nity Christ­mas event, now in its third year, has lots of ex­cit­ing en­ter­tain­ment and ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­ised for the night, start­ing with Santa’s visit at 8.30pm, the Clyde School Choir from 9pm, carol singing from 9.40pm and con­clud­ing with the an­nual light­ing of the Christ­mas lights at 10pm.

Clyde on Sun­day group mem­ber Mel Eade says the event is al­ways a very so­cial com­mu­nity oc­ca­sion and as per last year’s event, two bag­pipers will pipe the crowd down the main street while the lights are turned on.

There will be mulled wine, juice, truf­fles and saveloys avail­able for gold coin do­na­tions on the night and a large gin­ger­bread house will also be up for auc­tion, cour­tesy of Heidi of the An­tique Lodge Mo­tel.

This year, Christ­mas in Clyde are proud to present an ex­cit­ing light pro­jec­tion show by former lo­cal and up and com­ing artist Jon Thom.

Jon, a former Clyde res­i­dent now based in Dunedin, will present pho­tos and im­ages of Clyde’s early days, in­ter­spersed with art­works of pupils of Clyde School that will be pro­jected on to the Ma­sonic Lodge.

The light show will con­tinue to run for a month.

Christ­mas in Clyde will be held on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 17 from 8.30pm on the Oliver’s restau­rant front lawn, Clyde.
